How it Works

Hyaluronic Acid

This well known skincare ingredient resides in our extracellular matrix, the space between our cells, and is a crucial component of our skin. This molecule has many functions including retaining moisture and maintaining a strong barrier, two important factors for healthy looking skin. Hyaluronic acid has an unparalleled ability to bind to water molecules which moisturizes and plumps the skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Turmeric Extract

Turmeric is abundantly found throughout Asia and has been coveted for it’s cosmetic, culinary, and medicinal properties. The turmeric we use in our illuminating serum is extracted and distilled to isolate specific molecules called turmerones. Turmerones have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help to protect cells and prevent damage from external factors like UV rays and pollution. Protecting our cells from this oxidative stress prevents signs of aging  such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin.

Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract

Centella Asiatica has long been used as a medicinal herb in Ayurvedic, traditional African, and traditional Chinese cultures. This plant was especially beneficial to dermatological conditions due to its active compounds that include triterpenes and polyphenols which have antioxidant and cell repair properties.

At times production of cells can become out of control, resulting in a lack of functionality of very important skin cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts produce vital skin proteins and when we lose that functionality our skin begins to look rough and dull. Studies have shown that when this extract is applied to the skin, the cell cycle is regulated, production of fibroblasts is increased, and skin radiance is improved.

Himanthalia Elongata Extract

Harvested in Brittany, France, this brown algae extract helps reduce hyperpigmentation spots and prevent new ones from forming. Recent studies have shown that the dark age spots on our skin contain an increased amount of damaged cells called senescent cells, specifically senescent fibroblast cells. Senescent cells are usually picked up and recycled by our immune system. As we age this process becomes less efficient and senescent cells accumulate.

Senescent fibroblasts no longer produce specific proteins responsible for communicating with the melanin producing skin cells, melanocytes. The himanthalia elongata extract has been shown to reactivate that protein production allowing for open communication between these cells. This prevents melanocytes from over producing melanin, which causes dark spots. Targeting this cell pathway reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation without affecting your natural skin tone.

Rosmarinyl Glucoside, Caffeyl Glucoside, Gallyl Glucoside

Skin redness can be caused by multiple factors which include the overproduction of inflammatory proteins interleukin-8 (IL-8) and TNF-ꭤ, the release of histamine which causes itching, and the overproduction of the VEGF protein that is responsible for the production of new blood vessels.

This ingredient blend reduces the appearance of redness and increases skin radiance by targeting these main processes. Studies have shown that when this ingredient blend is applied to skin cells it greatly reduces the production of IL-8, TNF-ꭤ, histamine, and VEGF. When directly applied to the skin the appearance of redness is reduced and the skin is more even and luminous.

How it's Made

We think knowing how products are made is just as important as knowing what goes in them. Our process below will show you how all these skin loving ingredients are combined to create Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum!


  • Add the emulsifier to the main container and mix rapidly.
  • In a separate container, mix together all the oil ingredients until combined.
  • Slowly add the premixed oils to the emulsifier.
    • The oils will begin to thicken, creating an oil gel.
  • In a separate container, dissolve freeze dried aloe juice powder into distilled water to make aloe juice.
  • Add the water soluble ingredients to the aloe juice and mix until combined.
  • Add the gum to the aloe juice container and mix until dissolved.
  • Add the aloe juice mixture into the oil container and mix with a high shear mixer called a homogenizer.
    • This step allows the emulsifier to fully combine the water based and oil based ingredients.
  • The result is a flowing serum ready to illuminate your skin!

Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum is packaged in a 100% post consumer recycled aluminum bottle containing 2.1 fluid ounces (60 grams). The label is made of sugarcane fiber waste and is compostable and recyclable!

To recycle, remove the pump and rinse excess product from both the bottle and the pump. Place both the bottle and pump in their specified curbside recycling bins.

From all of our research, we found that using post consumer recycled aluminum bottles was our most sustainable option. Unlike plastic, aluminum does not decrease in quality after recycling making it infinitely recyclable! It is also much lighter than glass which helps reduce our carbon emissions during shipping.


Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum may help reduce surface redness associated with rosacea but is not formulated to treat rosacea.

The plant actives used in Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum have been clinically tested to show their effectiveness. These studies have shown that visual results can be obtained after 4-8 weeks of twice a day application. We recommend taking before and after photos to see side by side results!

No, Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum will not have a lightening or whitening effect on your skin. The active plant extracts used in the serum specifically target hyperpigmented spots without affecting your naturally beautiful skin tone!

Earth & Sea Illuminating Serum is formulated to be applied as the first product in a skincare routine. As a light serum, this product does not contain a film former so other products can be applied on top of it and your skin will still absorb all the beneficial ingredients.

    Awesome product

    I have been using this product for about two months now and the results have been amazing. I had hyperpigmented spots on my cheeks and after using this product I have noticed that the spots have been slowly fading away and are now not as visible as before. Also, I am a diabetic person and have hyperpigmented areas around my neck and have used this serum on those areas as well and have seen great results. I have tried many different products before but none have given me the results like this product has. Definitely would recommend this to all!
